    Does anyone know anything about this casting head?

    According to Mortec:

    14092360... 86-88... oval... open... 454 truck.

    Who knows about valve size, intake runner ports, etc...
    Are these better or worse than say mid-'70's era open heads.

    i don't know for sure, but most of the time when a head is called a truck head it has peanut ports.

    Sure enough. I went and looked at them in person after I posted this, and they seem to have little dinky intake ports. I think I'll just have my '74 era heads rebuilt instead of getting these.
